My dear friend, may you rest in peace and may your family find comfort! We will always remember you in our hearts!
Maria was the heart of Juana Briones School, and with her side-kick Sharon, kept all of us teachers, parents, and students on track. Intelligent, efficient, classy, generous, loyal, and helpful---she was all these qualities and more. And her smile could light up a tired teacher's day! She will be greatly missed. Her well-lived life is our inspiration.
